Here is a screen from the SIPro backtester (thank you, thank you). It was run by Jim (thank you) as Job 577 with low volatility results since 3/00 (GSD of 19). Here are the results if we take it back to 1997.

The screen is probably the progeny that would result if Value at the Top started hanging out with the Screamer clan (we won't say which one).

1) Price > 5
2) Market Cap > 100
3) Average Volume > 10K/day
4) Price > 52-wk high x 0.9
5) P/E < Industry median
6) P/CF < Industry median
7) P/FCF < Industry median
8) Sort by high Ave 10d Volume / Ave 3mon Volume

As a 10-stock monthly:

CAGR 79%
GSD 21
RRR4 2.33
1997 21%
1998 32
1999 80
2000 64
2001 51
2002 26
2003 118
2004 0 YTD

The picks not particularly low-priced; there were less than ten stocks under $10 chosen over the years.
